This workshop helps children and teenagers from 8 to 16 years have an in-depth understanding of artificial intelligence and virtual reality, 2 disruptive technologies that are going to change all industries in the near future. With our uniquely designed hands-on projects, participants will have a broad overview of the fields and also gain fundamental skills to leverage essential technologies.
Lead facilitator Alex Lailei Huang has extensive work experience in the VR /AR education industry. He was a researcher in distributed artificial intelligence at Hong Kong Baptist University.

By the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to understand:
- 2 of the most important disruptive technologies which are generating huge impacts on nearly all industries and job markets
- artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning – the ‘intelligent brain’ behind autonomous cars and smart robots. To enhance the understanding, participants can train their own neural networks to unleash human-level intelligence like recognizing faces, understanding voice commands and analyzing social media.
- virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality – the new human-digital world interface that destined to replace all screens and smartphones.
